Book 2 in the Alien Slave Masters series

When a distant planet’s ownership is in dispute, conquering aliens turn defiant human males into pampered sex slaves.

Forced to be the sex slave of an alien warrior, perpetual bad boy, Joel, finds himself tossed into the bed of a space station commander who tests even Joel’s cultivated bravado. While he’d learned to survive an abusive father, the Travian master proves to be a greater challenge. Joel soon finds himself caught between the desperate need to fight his captivity and the unnerving tug of attraction he feels for his new master.

Born to one of the lower castes of his people, Arath has worked his way up to a coveted command. His drive for success has left him isolated from his crew. He has no time or interest in caring for the pesky human pet thrust upon him by his superior. His duty allows him no other choice, so he reluctantly takes what has been given to him. He is surprised by how easily he is seduced by his pet’s allure.

Joel and Arath dance around each other and their growing attraction, until politics intrude and test their tentative feelings. The stakes are suddenly raised, and the choices they make may change the course of history for both of their species.

Macky’s Review

One of my top favourite reads of last year was the first book in Samantha Cayto's Alien Slave Masters series, The Captains Pet. A gem of a find that introduced me to strong willed Wid, defiant Joel and sweet natured Stuart. Taking me completely by surprise, I didn't expect to love it half as much as I did, so having really looked forward to The Rebellious Pet, I'm happy to report I'm just as enamoured with Joel's story as I was Wid's, and now excitedly waiting for book three!

The original instigator of the incident that got him and his rag tag group of young rebels friends captured, it opens with Joel arriving at a Travian space station with Firth, the alien engineer he'd originally been given to as a pleasure pet. If you've not read Wid and Kells story yet, I don't want to give too much away but certain events that occurred on the ship, have changed the dynamics between the boys and their captors, so at this moment he and Firth have an uneasy truce. Not true friendship per se, but the forced sex has stopped and they've now reached an understanding that allows Joel a freedom of sorts... even though in essence he's still a Travian captive.

A pretty poorly Firth is confined to the medical wing, making it unsafe for Joel to be alone on the station, so our 'rebellious pet' of the title is unceremoniously thrust onto the imposing Arath, newly appointed commander of Outer Ring Station Twelve. Another indifferent and efficient Travian, he initially doesn't want the responsibility of a human pet, but politically unable to refuse the gift, finds himself reluctant owner of the small stubborn human who surprisingly quickly begins to fill his thoughts.

Protocol makes it Arath's duty to mark his pet immediately so no one will touch or harm the human, but of course for Joel, who's straight, it's back to being raped at the whim of his new 'master' and back to just being treated as a commodity for sex. Like I said in my last review, the cultural differences don't excuse the initial rape scenes, nothing can, but they do show how totally alien the mindset of the technologically advanced Travians is. Their views on sex and relationships poles apart from those of their human counterparts, who they class as lesser, inferior creatures.

Joel's rocky, poignant past pre capture, makes him a sympathetic but feisty character and I loved how over time his spunky survivor mentality made the apparently immovable Arath see Jo-el (as he calls him) in a different light. And we in turn begin to see that beneath Arath's cool, commanding facade there's actually a being with worries and stresses of his own, that like his predecessor Kell start to make him appear more 'human'—if you can attach that emotional tag to someone so alien.

It isn't hard to guess where the story leads, and if you've read the The Captains Pet you'll recognise a familiar pattern, but hats off to Samantha Cayto for again making Joel and Arath's story another unputdownable, extremely entertaining read. Made all the more enjoyable because of her easy flowing writing style.

There's something really more-ish about this series. Yes there's a fair bit of XXX erotica but the background history setting up the reasoning behind the boys initial capture and the world and culture building within the matriarchal Travian society is well detailed, cleverly thought out and overall, interestingly plotted. This is not a case of "Do you want some story with your sex?" It's more "Hey, here's a pretty great story to go with it!"

Nicely fleshed out supporting characters give the tale more depth and the more you get to know them, Ms Cayto has you not only rooting for the human contingents, but—when the "you know what" hits the fan—the Travian 'hero's' of the story too. I found myself especially liking Wen: a young Travian cadet who befriends Joel. An endearing character I'd love to see get his own story in the future.

I'm absolutely loving this Alien Slave Masters series so I'm just hoping and praying that it's not going to be too long a wait for the next book.

I'm space-tastically hooked!

The Captain’s Pet

captains pet

Book one in the Alien Slave Masters series

When a distant planet’s ownership is in dispute, conquering aliens turn defiant human males into pampered sex slaves.

In a not-too-distant future, a lopsided war has led to aliens invading and occupying an Earth settlement. Wid is a young colonist who has been caught harassing the aliens. He and his friends are rounded up and sent to an alien warship patrolling the disputed space. His fate is to serve as a sex slave for the ship’s imposing captain. Wid, at first, fights against his enslavement, but soon learns that not only does he stand no chance against the much larger and stronger captain, he isn’t sure he even wants to.

Like all Travian males, Kell is bound by duty to defend his people. Having risen to the rank of captain, he nevertheless chafes against the boring and endless patrol of the space invaded by the humans. His misses his family and constantly guards against his scheming first officer. He sees his reward of a human sex slave as more of a nuisance. Yet the pretty, fair-haired human’s exotic allure is hard to resist. He finds far more pleasure in the use of his pet than he would like.

Kept naked and leashed, Wid’s days are filled with boredom, while his nights wrapped in Kell’s arms turn from fear into pleasure. Even as the humans plot their escape, Wid and Kell form a bond and their growing affection cannot be ignored. When tensions boil over among the aliens, Wid and his friends may be Kell and his crew’s only chance for survival.

The Alien Slave Masters Series 

Desperate humans fled an overcrowded Earth and believed they had found sanctuary on New World Colony 7. The Travians see them as invaders and have become reluctant occupiers of the pesky humans after a short war. When young men taunt and harass them, the Travians find a surprising use for the miscreants—they turn them into the sexual pets of their battleship officers.

Wid, Joel and Stuart are three young men who are among the first to face their fate as slaves. Not all of the Travians are happy with their gifts and the responsibility that having them brings. But there is no way to refuse. Now humans and Travians have to forge uneasy—and, for the humans, frightening—relationships. Some Travians exploit their pets, while others pamper them and find themselves lured surprisingly into love. For their part, the humans are drawn deeper into Travian culture and politics. They may be the last, best, hope for their colony’s freedom.
